Another Look at Making Thinking Visible

Our LARAEC keynote speaker Mark Church came back for more!

This session was designed to go a little bit more deeply into the exploration of thinking routines that promote depth of learning and engagement.  When students, whatever their age, feel that their teachers have genuine interest in and curiosity for their thinking, they tend to bring their thinking more routinely to their learning.  Participants who came to this additional online workshop had a chance to reflect upon their experiences to promote engagement and thinking more as inspired by ideas gleaned from the October event.  And participants had the opportunity to learn a few more thinking routines that could be useful tools and structures to add to their practice.

Some of these routines are great for faculty training and collaborative meetings too!
